For Students: Comfortable vs Fulfilled/Francis Chan

I remember before I gave my life completely over to Christ I was a walking a comfortable christian life.  I would say I believed in Jesus and what he did on the cross but in some areas of my life you could argue that I was living just the opposite.  A lot of times we find it hard to surrender to God and be fulfilled in certain areas of our life, because of how comfortable we’ve found it to be to stay where we are.

Well, God’s plan in those areas are more fulfilling than the current person or thing that’s occupying that area of your life right now. You are settling for what’s comfortable and forfeiting God’s best which fulfills.  If you would make the decision to give those areas to him and surrender to his plan you would never regret it.  The bible says in Jeremiah 29:11(NIV) “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”.  I found this video by Franis Chan that is awesome and it’s only a minute and twenty-six seconds longHe’s talking about surrendering to God.  As you watch this think about the areas in your life that you need to surrender to God, so that you can move from what’s comfortable to what fulfills.
